Did You Know?


The map used indicates Smallville to be near real-life Wichita, and Metropilis near real life Scott City, about 5 hours driving distance away from each other. This supports the statement in "Truth" that these locations are about 6 hours from each other. See more »


When Baern is in archives looking at the computer screen, you can see what he is looking at projected onto his face, but he is not looking at a projector; he is looking at a computer screen. See more »


Baern: So this is Jor-El's famed Fortress of Knowledge. I thought it'd be bigger.
Clark Kent: It doesn't matter. You won't be staying long.
Baern: Big talk, big man. I'm surprised you're still standing. I guess Jor-El was right about how the yellow sun affects you Kryptonian cockroaches. But I'm back. And now... I'm super-sized. This is the perfect place for the fall of the House of El.

Introducing the Phantom Bow Wow, er, Baern
8 October 2007 | by See all my reviews

Clark must encounter the second Phantom Zone escapee, and find how to re-activate the Fortress of Solitude in order to continue his training, in Season 6's sixth episode.

A phantom crash-lands on railroad tracks in Oakland, and uses a boy's body (Bow Wow) as his vessel. From there, he travels in a straight line across the country searching to get revenge on Kal-El. In addition, Clark learns that his father's Phantom Zone construction assistant Raya is indeed alive after also escaping through the Zone gateway. Rays helps Clark learn more about his past and helps Clark in his duel with Baern.

This episode is intriguing because it features the rapper/actor Bow Wow as a villain, and features a great performance by Pascale Hutton as Raya. Too long her performance in the show was so short-lived.
